As good as confirmed that Brexit day wont be the 29th March (the EU very unlikely to block a short technical extension if a deal has passed but a couple of weeks needed for legislation.)
So the news specials planned for that day are going to be have to be scrapped.
God, for all your pessimism elsewhere you seem to be very optimistic to think an extension is just for a deal to get through Parliament at the 4th time of asking.
The only way I can see Europe agreeing to an extension is if it involves throwing the question back to the public as either a referendum or election, or more likely both. I can't see any progress being made under the current government.
Back to TV matters and don't know if it's been reflected in the ratings but now seems a very wise move in hindsight to move Peston midweek considering all the key Tuesday night votes in recent months.
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.
